VALDOSTA, Ga. (WALB) - South Georgia Medical Center (SGMC) gave an update Tuesday on how drive-thru vaccinations have been going.
They began this drive-thru on Jan. 13 and as of Tuesday, they have vaccinated 2,789 people.
The hospital is taking 250 appointments per day, with a goal of eventually expanding.
Sherri Felkel with SGMC said everything has been going smooth. She says people have been very excited to get their shot.
Felkel said they’ve been seeing a lot of patients 65 and older.
She believes it’s because they don’t want to risk getting COVID-19.
”We’re just so happy we can do this for the community because that is our goal: to get the community immunized so we can go back to life as it was,” said Felkel
Appointments seem to be filled up until mid-February, but they want to remind everyone to monitor the website daily.
People may cancel or change their appointment days and times, making it possible to get one sooner.
